Gov. Ajimobi thanked the commissioners and Special Advisers who made up the executive council for their contributions so far and directed them to hand over to the Permanent Secretaries in their various ministries.
The purge affected all the commissioners, special advisers, secretary to the state government, Akin Olajide and chief of staff, Adeolu Akande. He announced the dissolution of his cabinet not so long ago.
